Emergency Lighting Solution for Grid Connected Battery Energy Storage Plant.

Bespoke Static Inverter System to Provide Emergency Lighting for a Grid-Connected Battery Energy Storage Plant

Project Overview:

Due to specific site requirements, BPC Energy were tasked by one of their customers to provide a bespoke Emergency Lighting system in a critical grid-connected battery energy story plant.

The primary objective was to enhance power protection capabilities and ensure efficient emergency lighting

With their own in-house CAD team and workshop facilities, BPC Energy were able to design both a suitable solution and carry out its manufacture to the specific needs of a grid substation.

Scope of Work:

The project involved the customisation of an existing BPC Energy emergency lighting product including:

  • Implementation of a BPC PowerPro ELMODV4 modular design single phase static inverter system equipped with a 4kVA power module, providing a total capacity of 4kVA / 3.6kW.
  • The integration of internal batteries within the chassis ensured seamless power backup during grid substation operations.
  • Utilization of BPC PowerStor 35Ah 12V VRLA sealed lead-acid batteries, renowned for their reliability and long service life of 10-12 years.
  • Battery build and commissioning services to ensure the functionality of the site-integrated emergency lighting system.
  • Installation of blanking plates to further enhance safety measures within the grid substation environment.


The project posed several challenges, including the need for the design and verification of an acceptable solution, the manufacture of a bespoke chassis to allow the internal accommodation of the appropriate battery blocks to deliver the required backup autonomy time at End of Life, ensuring seamless power backup during grid substation operations.

Following site installation rigorous testing and quality assurance measures were implemented to guarantee the reliability and efficiency of the power protection solution.


The implementation of BPC Energy's bespoke and tailored services, including manufacture, provided the grid substation with a bespoke solution to their specific requirements.

Post-installation, a comprehensive service and maintenance provision will ensure that this system will provide a long-term solution to the customer's Emergency Lighting requirements.

Through innovative design modifications and meticulous execution, BPC Energy successfully delivered a customised power protection and emergency lighting solution tailored to the unique requirements of the grid substation. The project's success underscores BPC Energy's commitment to providing reliable, resilient, and efficient power solutions for critical infrastructure environments.
